Lloris and Trippier return for Spurs as Valery benched

Tuesday night’s team news was mixed for Fantasy managers as some options returned to their respective sides, while others did not.

Hugo Lloris (£5.4m) and Kieran Trippier (£6.0m) are back in the Spurs side to face Brighton.

Their goalkeeper missed the trip to Manchester City with a small injury, while Trippier was rested with Juan Foyth (£5.0m) deployed instead of him at right wing-back.

It looks like a back-four for Spurs tonight with Danny Rose (£5.8m), Jan Vertonghen (£5.9m) and Toby Alderweireld (£6.0m) joining Trippier in defence.

Those invested in the Spurs attack will be pleased to see that Son Heung-min (£8.8m), Fernando Llorente (£5.1m), Dele Alli (£8.8m) and Lucas Moura (£6.8m) made it into the starting XI.

Christian Eriksen (£9.3m) is also in the side but might be playing a deeper role alongside Victor Wanyama (£4.9m) with Eric Dier (£4.7m) on the bench – and Trippier’s may also impinge on his set piece potential too.

Meanwhile, Chris Hughton has made six changes to the Brighton outfit that drew 0-0 at Wolves.

Bruno (£4.4m) and Gaëtan Bong (£4.4m) drop out for Bernardo (£4.2m) and Martin Montoya (£4.3m).

Glenn Murray (£6.3m) drops out for Florin Andone (£5.0m) to lead the line, while Jurgen Locadia (£5.3m) and Alireza Jahanbakhsh (£6.7m) come in for Solly March (£4.7m) and José Izquierdo (£5.9m) on the flanks of the attack.

Perhaps a surprise to some is the fact that Watford’s two-man strike force has stayed the same for their second match of Double Gameweek 35.

Both Gerard Deulofeu (£5.6m) and Andre Gray (£6.0m) have kept their places after starting against Huddersfield.

Meanwhile, Jan Valery (£4.1m), who missed Southampton’s trip to Newcastle through illness, is fit enough only for the bench.

Nathan Redmond (£5.4m) retains his starting berth while Shane Long (£4.6m) comes in for Danny Ings (£5.4m) and Stuart Armstrong (£5.1m) replaces Josh Sims (£4.4m).

“There are a few fresh players after an intensive game on Saturday. It’s important for us mainly in the first row that we have good sprinting quality, and I think the two guys deserve to play. They played a good game in the second half against Newcastle and that’s why they get the chance today.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Spurs XI: Lloris; Rose, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Trippier; Wanyama, Eriksen; Son, Alli, Moura; Llorente.

Brighton XI: Ryan; Bernardo, Dunk, Duffy, Montoya; Stephens, Bissouma; Locadia, Groß, Jahanbakhsh; Andone.

Watford XI: Foster; Masina, Kabasele, Cathcart, Janmaat; Pereyra, Capoue, Doucouré, Hughes; Deulofeu, A Gray.

Southampton XI: Gunn; Bednarek, Stephens, Yoshida; Ward-Prowse, Oriol Romeu, Højbjerg, Bertrand; Redmond, Armstrong; Long.

    A) Salah and Eriksen

      prefer A

      I think Hazard's (and Chelsea's) goose is cooked for this season, and I'm a Chelsea fan
      Yesterday was our easiest game and we blew it

    So it was either Long or Llorente as my replacement for Deeney but you can probably guess which one I went with.

    1. makaveli123

      Long

            It's a case of not being talked out of it. I was set on Long and Laporte in for Duffy and Deeney.
            I went Llorente and Cathcart. Which now seems foolish of course.

          Benching Digne is a really tough pill to swallow. Typical wildcard backfire.

          How are Spurs defenders getting more BPS than the brighton lads ?

            They are making loads of passes and taking loads of shots.

              They’re not getting +BPS for hitting row Z mate

                Vert had a shot on target. Toby also had one blocked.

            Passing bonus maybe

              Blocked shots are classed as shots off target and - BPS

          Brighton clean sheet will sum up this season perfectly

        • footballdog

          Plz choose
          A) Pogba to Salah
          B) Murray to Agüero
          C) Pogba to Son

          This game is poised for a Wanyama goal

            • 2 Years

            If it ruins all those Brighton CS then I am all for it. Only got Duffy myself so hurts loads of Ryan / Duffy owners.

          I’m 24 players into the game week and so far my only attacking return is 1 assist 😮

            TAA and 22 blanks so far too

            • 8 Years

            17 players for me, and also only 1 assist

            23 players in...Aguero and TAA assist

            A few CSs though

          • 7 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Brighton don't have a CS today. There's another 45 minutes.

            • 7 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Correct

            We know and I have triple spurs attack so could do with a goal

            But they’ve shown a lot more fight than last week and already have one CS this week. 75% of the way to two!

          2. Super Saints
            • 2 Years

            It'll be a very Chris Hughton way to stay in the PL if Brighton manage to grind out 5 successive 0-0s in their last 5 games...
